When we make stuff, stuff happens. Acclaimed "Science Guy" Bill Nye examines the everyday stuff of our lives and the far-reaching effects our actions have on the planet.  Teachers can utilize the keen delivery of Bill Nye to help students understand human interaction with the environment, the ways in which our own technology can help or hurt the environment, and actions we can implement to improve our use of resources.   

Bill Nye examines wasteful office habits and provides simple tips to conserve energy and reduce waste while at work. By conducting street interviews, the program considers how people contribute to environmental problems while performing everyday office tasks. The presentation discusses the make up, manufacturing, and disposal of common supplies as well as the science behind climate change, recycling, and waste management.
